Court Papers Show Bernard Madoff Worth $826M

New documents obtained from court filings show that Bernard Madoff is currently worth at least $826 million. The documents are from appeals requesting Madoff be released from prison until sentencing, which is scheduled for June 16, 2009. According to the documents, Madoff’s Investment Securities firm is valued at $700 million (currently being liquidated), along with $22 million worth in real estate (including his $7 million New York City apartment), a $7 million French yacht, jewelry worth in excess of $2 million, among other assets. Bernard Madoff was remanded in jail after pleading guilty to 11 criminal offences relating to a Ponzi scheme where Madoff allegedly defrauded $65 billion from investors.

About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel.

The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
